Celebrate ‘A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood’ with the Mister Rogers Walking Tour

The self-guided tour of memorabilia returns November 1-27 to honor the College’s most beloved alumnus.

To coincide with the November 22 release of the movie A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood starring Tom Hanks, Rollins will honor its most famous alumnus, Fred Rogers ’51 ’74H, with a free self-guided campus walking tour of memorabilia. Guests are invited to stroll and reflect on Rogers’ legacy while observing items like the sweater and sneakers he wore on Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood and his stone on the Rollins Walk of Fame.

The tour will run through November 27 during the regular operating hours of the College’s Cornell Fine Arts Museum: Tuesday 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., Wednesday-Friday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Saturday and Sunday Noon to 5 p.m.

“The walking tour is our way of honoring the time that Fred Rogers spent on our campus as a student and the many ways he continues to influence the Rollins College community,” says President Grant Cornwell. “His messages of self-esteem, inclusiveness, and respect still resonate clearly in our community engagement endeavors and beyond.”

Please note that the museum is closed on Mondays. Parking is available in the SunTrust parking garage on Lyman Avenue (fees apply) or in available public parking areas.
